The general public is hereby informed that
whereas the National Universities Commission
(NUC) maintains its stand that online degrees are
not accepted in Nigeria at the moment, this does
not include the approved Nigerian Universities e-
Learning Programme run within the shores of
The Nigerian Universities e-Learning Programme
is a legitimate and well thought out pilot e-
learning initiative. It is a Public Private
Partnership between the National Universities
Commission (NUC), Park Associates E-Learning
Group, and four federal universities.
Its goal is to provide new opportunities for
students to access university education in
The four Participating Universities are:
i. University of Uyo;
ii. National Open University of Nigeria;
iii. Usmanu Danfodiyo University, Sokoto; and
iv. University of Maiduguri.
Students enrolled in the Programme can select
any of the following undergraduate degree
programmes: Economics, Banking & Finance,
Accounting, Business Administration and
Marketing for which they have requisite
qualifications. The Programme for now is only
available for candidates who wish to obtain BSc
Degree in Economics.
The Commission wishes to use this medium to
allay all fears and doubts concerning the
legitimacy or NUC endorsement of the Nigerian
Universities e-Learning Programme. This is one
of the avenues that the National Universities
Commission is exploring to increase access to
university education without compromising
quality. Students in the Programme are therefore
advised to continue to pursue their studies
without fear and prospective applicants are
encouraged to enrol.
Concerned parents, guardians, students and the
public may contact the Commission for further
clarification on the Programme under reference.
